APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a db is not explicitly activated, the last application
    connection can bring down the db. Any new attempts to connect to
    the db can appear to hang. In a W2K3 + VMWare environment using
    DB2 V9.5, WAS and Alphablox, this seems to happen more
    frequently. An OS level tool may indicate that the db2sysc.exe
    process is consuming a high percentage of CPU cycles.
    

Local fix

  • Activate the db on DB2 startup may reduce the chances of this
    happening.
